Psst . . . sometimes trying new to you can even give you a peek into innovative ways to apply it in your established genre, or it can give you new appreciation for your old favorite. When you’re stagnating, sometimes delving into it with renewed focus just makes it work.
Sometimes you need to fly away. Into something experimental. Into a place where writing is low-pressure and fun again. Into an experience that reminds you what it’s all about.
And sometimes you need a clean slate before you see why you’re in a rut.
